others to stay to maliki, you have to go. >> we can talk about iran in a second. >> i understand, but i'm also ins a conversation about the unity government, and occur sod many years ago, but just didn't happen, why not? >> so this whole conversation, this is back to the future moment. it is very similar back to 2009. the last time iraq had an election, we should point out that iraq has had a parliamentary election, the last time they had one in 2010, he basically ran neck and neck the american leaders certainly would have preferred who is a shia. an attempt to work out a power sharing agreement, maliki blocked every possible path. needs to be said, so did others. that would have made alliances to make it possibility, so it showed even at a time when america had 50,000 troops they had leverage, it still wasn't really able to do all that much to shape the political mind, that in the end will be up to the iraqis. what does iran have under maliki? >> if i can point out some irony, the thing that the president said he would do today, is send 300 advisers is exactly what president ragan did
it was a key one. iraq was at war with iran and it had been identity lle after tha. when i was there, you have a desert site, sort of 15 square miles, bunkers, semi secure site, some places the wire around the outside was torn down. >> you raised the question before we went on air, which is a good one, if it is isis forces there if they have former members with them or former sunni militias or former saddam forces who does that? >> you have to fight. they are using the strategic bombing in the army. if they are there now they will know the layout, what equipment is there and some of them, if they can utilize this. >> arwa, do they have intelligence how many other sunni groups or awakening groups are party groups are fighting? >> in terms of an exact number at this stage anderson, it's a mirky picture and connected to these various other sunni fighting sources. they will throw a couple familiar names out there, bundys, former other sunni groups quite prominent during the u.s. occupation of iraq. but at this stage, the situation is so polarized, that even if some of these former sunni groups are
of the sunni insu e insurgeoninsurg insurgeancy is adding tension to the area. iran is prepared to send volunteer militia into iraq to defend holy sights. the president announced his plan for assisting the iraqi military and fighting against isis which has captured several cities near baghdad. he is planning to send 300 advisors. this is 30 minutes. the president:i wanted to provide you an update on how we are responding to the situation. first we are trying to secure the embassy in iraq and i have taken steps to relocate the personal and sent reinforcement to better secure our facilities. second, we have increased our intelligence and reconnaissance assets so we have a better picture of what is taking place inside iraq and this will give us a greater understanding of what they are doing and how it is located and how we might support efforts to counter the threat. third, the united states will continue to increase your support to iraqi security forces. we are prepared to have centers to share intelligence. we are prepared to work with congress to provide additional equipment. we are pre
. those people have been killing each other for centuries and are not likely to stop any time soon. iran, a she a country next door, now holds power in southern iraq. who is going to counter that? no one. so, let's stay out of iraqi politics. we he can encourage the she a sunni folks to be reasonable. don't expect it. the second iraq issue is very important to america. we defeated terrorism there at a great cause in blood and treasure. now terrorism is back. we can cannot defeat it again on the ground. but we can damage the terrorists from the air. and we should do that. >> air strikes are an important factor psychologically and many other ways and that may require some air controllers and some special forces. we cannot afford to allow a syria/iraq enclave that will pose a direct threat to the united states of america. >> as mentioned, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey agrees with senator mccain, but president obama dissents. why? all i could glean from remarks today is that he feels military action will lead to unintended consequences. remember, he wouldn
. and into that vacuum have stepped nations like iran, like russia, like china. as we've abandoned our allies. the consequence has been to make the world a much, much more dangerous place. >> regardless of how congressional leaders may or may not try to frame the current crisis, the american public is pretty clear on what they want. they do not support the u.s. going back into iraq with 74% opposed to sending combat troops to iraq. joining me now is richard engel, nbc news chief foreign correspondent. he joins us from baghdad tonight. and richard, what are the latest reports you're hearing on the ground in baghdad? >> reporter: people here in baghdad welcome this action. they are nervous in this city. there is a curfew in place here. when you walk around, you see police and militia all over the streets, checkpoints almost everywhere. there is real fear here that isis militants could, perhaps not invade, although that's still a possibility, a less likely one, but more likely that they could bring chaos to the city by putting car bombs on the streets or suicide bombers. people here want the u.s
do we want disincident grace of iraq? what does that look like? are whenning iran instead of -- it's difficult. >> but thanks to representatives loretta sanchez and adam kensinger. from the left i'm stephanie cutter. >> from the right, s.e. cupp. erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. >>> the president says they're adviser, but is it mission creep? dozens may have been exposed to deadly live anthrax. dr. sanjay gupta is our guest. an "outfront" investigation police department under investigation for this. >> get on the ground now! get on the ground! >> let's go "outfront." >>> good evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. out front tonight more troops headed to iraq as we get word that john kerry is expected to travel to the country soon. president obama today promising that troops wouldn't be combat troops saying military advisers will head to iraq to combat the terror group isis that is gaining ground. >> we're prepared to send a small number of additional american military advisers, up to 300, to assess how we can best train, advise and support iraqi security forces going forward
'll read from the four major ones are the system in iran, civil law, friends, most of the world is under civil law. and such as the israel system. does the -- under which of those paradigms do these legal investigatory and adjudicatory bodies work. are there differences between these legal systems? partly at fault for the impasse or sometimemy that has been described. and to what extent might there be extrajudicial, political considerations that these adjudicatory bodies are not putting in these reports but which might influence them such as this was necessary to get this country's cooperation in whatever we were doing. these people may not know. and the investigators may not know. but the hire up is fine. what surprises me, okay, here's a settlement of nondisclosure and moving over to that country. >> so the question is how does the arbitration process base itself common law, civil law and to what extent do the political circumstances come into play so,ed, do you want to take that first? >> sure. for the most part, it's a mixture. as to your second question, does that contribute to some
about this speech it say were delivered in succession, and including iran in the process. >> our views is that iran can play a constructive role, if it can helping to sense the same message to the iraqi government that we're sending. which is, that iraqi only hopeds together -- holds together if it is inclusive. lou: we'll take this up in moments. also tonight, he was targeted by obama justice department, for her reporting on benghazi, former cbs news investigative journal is sheryl at kis at -- s joining us. >> and irs claiming that lois lernery e-mails are lost but they also destroyed hard drive from which they originateed. our first guest said that president's options in iraq stem from years of disengagement by this administration, and u.s., will do its part, it is up to the iraqis as a sovereign nation, joining us congressman buck mckean. it is great to have you with us. >> thank you, lou. lou: the president contradicting himself as we reported at outset of the broadcast, he also seemed to embrace greater ambiguity for greater explanation for the american people. after you listen t
this situation in iraq. >> terrorists who seek to murder americans. >> iran can play a constructive role. >> this is the height of foolishness. >> military advisors, 3 of them heading to iraq. what the iraqis think of that you live from baghdad to the white house and to karl rove to tell us what he thinks. the obama administration did wrong in iraq. and how close is isis to achieving its ultimate goal. we investigate plus congresswoman served in iraq. she goes "on the record" in minutes. first to baghdad. jane is there live. jane, first of all, has the word sort of gotten there about the 300 advisors? >> well it has filtered in. most important to most iraqis, greta than potential air strikes that really has a lot of people unsettled here. it's what has kept people off the streets. the 300 advisors, as long as they don't see them, not too much of a problem in most people's minds. >> how does it feel there right now? you have been there for some time. does it more dangerous like more trouble on the way? do you worry about the islamic jihadists coming up the road to baghdad? >> >> well, the
to march to the our orders. they wanted us to knock off saddam ma seen, gadhafi, bomb iranment they will not stop until we are up to our necks in mideast quick sand. david cornish, washington bureau chief from mother jones and erin guerin, an international correspondent. let's begin with what president obama said today. >> we have positioned additional u.s. military assetses in the region. because of our increased intelligence resources we are developing more information about potential targetses associated with isil. we will be prepared to the take targeted precise military action if and when we determine that the situation on the ground requires it. it is not the place for the united states to choose iraq's leader. it is clear that only leaders who can govern with an inclusive agenda can truly bring the iraqi people together and help them through this crisis. >> after listening to the president -- and i generally support the president and i'm generally with him in terms of restraint. i'm not sure he showed restraint. why are we going over there and picking out bombing targets
with the terrorist threat, and keep iran from getting a nuclear weapon. those are all great ideas, and this is a doozy from last night when another wannabe commander-in-chief said -- >> specifically, what do we do now? lots of people are for airstrikes rurks for airstrikes? >> i think there are a number of ways, we don't have to signal all the things that we're going to do. >> i asked rick perry last night about a half dozen times, would he suggest we do in iraq. and never got a clear answer. so thanks to all the wannabe presidents for your glittering generalities and statements of the obvious, but being president means dealing with the details. and thinking through the consequences of military intervention. sadly, i don't hear any of that serious work being done on the republican side of the aisle. in the crossfire tonight, representatives loretta sanchez and adam kinzinger, congressman, with the exception of you -- >> i was going to say -- >> no offense. >> you're a veteran of these wars, you served in the air force, you still serve. and we honor that service. but there is no be
.s. support. he said that iran should not work only on behalf of iraq's shia majority. >> what's your sense of that right now? >> i think iran has heard from us. we've indicated to them that it is important for them to avoid steps that might encourage the kind of sectarian splits that might lead to civil war. >> reporter: the prospect of u.s. airstrikes remains real but will not be limited to iraq. similarin, senior officials say if u.s. interests are threatened u.s. military actions could target the same sunni insurgents in syria. >> alfonsi: cbs news correspondent clarissa ward is in baghdad tonight. clarissa, the president seemed to raise the question whether prime minister maliki can solve this crisis or not. what do people think there? >> reporter: well, sharyn, obviously, it depends who you talk to, but it has been striking to see a lot of top shiite politicians coming out of the woodwork and saying that maliki must go, that his policies are too sectarian, too divisive, that he has alienated the sunni people and pushed their leaders out of the government. there is a general consensus
. >> reporter: of course, iraq borders iran, and despite some early hints that the administration would actually try to work formally with iran to try to stabilize the situation, the president all but ruled that out today, reminding iran that it needs to stop seeing everything in the region, quote, solely through sectarian eyes if they want to be part of the solution. brian? >> chuck todd from the white house north lawn tonight to start us off, chuck, thanks. for reaction to all othis withis tense with t chi himself back in baghdad these days. richard, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. people here in baghdad certainly welcomed this. this city is tense. there's a curfew in place. there are checkpoints across the ci. wored that isis could invade or at least send car bombs here. they want the u.s. bombing now, and make no mistake. this is a u.s. military intervention. they are not american boots on the ground, but these advisers are going to be working with the iraqi military, guiding the military, picking targets, helping the military to take back the half dozen or so cities that ha
resources? >> china and iran are on top. russia of course now. those are the actors you can think of. a lot of potential in china. >> 4.5 billion. thank you. thank you all for watching this west." of "bloomberg ♪ >> welcome to money clip where we tie together money news. amazon fired the latest shot with a fire phone. meanwhile, chile shows little passion on the field and off. and out the door, the board of american apparel cuts loose its controversial ceo. google glasses going into the operating room. that's part of our wiring the world series. finally, a $1000 haircut. i'm not kidding.
were to end up on the ground and we saw what happened in iran and they have the technology and that is compromised and how do you deal with that? all of this is very complicated and a travesty for many of us who served in the country. how are we at this place with so many of us saw it coming when so many of us saw it coming and raised her hand. let's not let this happen. let's do something before this occurs. but secure the gains that we have. 4500 souls gone. it is absolute meaningful and absolutely appropriate but for the greater missions of securing iraq and making sure that no weapons of mass distraction repair and securing our place there all gone just like that. >> host: who is to blame, where were the mistakes made? >> guest: >> guest: there have been a lot of mistakes made. for me i think the president had opportunities here. i do say that we should have a status of forces agreement saying maliki he was not responsive. karzai has not been responsive that we were able somehow to be working through that and i would also say maliki wouldn't have a country to rule if it
. iran refuses to stop its pursuit of nuclear weapons. taliban threatens stability in afghanistan. and hamas has captured teenagers. holding them, one of them, an american teenager new york israel. isis, boko haram, al qaeda and other terrorist groups are threatening liberty and freedom around the world. madam speaker, we live in a dangerous world. yet our military is being forced to make due -- make do with less. spending precious resources to follow the obama climate change agenda will compromise our national security. then this same amendment was being adopted previously, some people claimed the amendment would prevent the military from using science. that's not true. this amendment merely prevents the pentagon from spending money, precious money, to implement policies based on the obama administration's climate assessment and the united nations reports. these are widely acknowledged as political documents. adopted by people with an agenda. we should not be spending money pursuing ideological experiments when we face military challenges around the world. this amendment will ens
with sunnis and kurds and shia to talk about a different government, without maliki in charge. >> and iran. i mean, that's a huge part of that puzzle is trying to get, first, iran to pressure maliki and secondly to get iran to have a position that, you know what, maliki has failed in terms of representing shiite interests in iraq. and his failure, therefore, puts in danger their position, vis-a-vis what the sunnis and isis are doing. so you're right, and it really scares me to hear george talk about vietnam. because i think that's going around town today is people are saying, well, how deep are we getting into this. i think from the position we're in right now, it's right to say that if you have any hopes for maintaining some stability in iraq, you have to get the kurds and hopefully some of the sunnis who remain open to it, to participate in the idea of a national government. >> but the kurds, they're positioning themselves for an independent state. they're already making moves to do that. >> yeah, but they would help i think at the current time. ultimately they will go independent. but i ha
. >> ifill: mr. obama also said he would be open to working with iran so long as they send the same unifying message to the shia-run government. >> if iran is coming in solely as an armed force on behalf of the shia and it-- if it is framed in that fashion, then that probably worsens the situation and the prospect for a government formation that would actually be constructive over the long term. >> ifill: left unaddressed: the future of nouri al maliki, who is faulted in some quarters for fanning the sectarian divisions now roiling the country. maliki's political movement won the most seats in april's election, and the president suggested today iraqis would have to sort out internal politics on their own. but "the new york times" reported today that u.s. officials have already signaled to opposition leaders in baghdad that maliki step down. something many sunni leaders have already demanded. >> ( translated ): we think al- maliki has completely lost his balance. we advise him to leave government, because i can't imagine that, with al-maliki remaining, the iraqi crisis will be solved. >> ifil
against sunni militants, we will look at the role of iran while washington and tehran work together to shore up the iraqi regime. first, as do if patent office cancels the trademark registration for the redskins because the football team's name is "disparaging to native americans," we will speak with amanda blackhorse, the navajo activist who filed the lawsuit. then we go to brazil where thousands of people marched wednesday to protest massive spending on the world cup and the call for more affordable housing. we will speak with sportswriter dave zirin. >> the land is incredibly powerful and the world cup in the older books provide what is known as a state of exception to grab the land, remove the favela , and develop it. >> the supreme court sides with so-called fulcher funds over the people of argentina. all of that and more coming up. this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has reportedly condition military intervention in iraq on the resignation of prime minister a maliki. iraqi and u.s. officials said wednesd
in vienna that say nuclear negotiations between iran and six world powers are making little progress. uranium enrichment program, which the west suspects as part of a plan to make nuclear weapons, that is an accusation iran denies. today,state television he cast negative light on those talks and dismissed the six other powers as completely acceptable. the two sides have until july 22 find an agreement. now to intense fighting -- until july 20 two find an agreement. now to infants -- intense fighting in the ukraine. the most intense fighting is in a city just to the east of sauvignon. turnbull reports. >> the new faces of the ukrainian leadership, sworn in by parliament. >> i, fully conscious of my great possibility as a cabinet member, solemnly swear to be faithful to the people of ukraine. >> a former chief with the russians teed -- top priority in an aide -- in an effort to ease tensions with moscow. accused of moving forces closer to the border with ukraine.ine -- with a few thousand more soldiers have been deployed there in recent days. i consider it a very regrettable step backw
the objections of the government. iraq has the fifth large nest the world, and in 2012, it surpassed iran to become the second largest in op exk, the organization of petroleum exporting countries. who buys iraq's oil? china is the number one with customer. china's remains silence in public, but has reason to worry. the crisis in iraq threatens not only supply lines but also china's billions of dollars in oil infrastructure investment. all the moving pieces in iraq. and it's oil fields, eventually work its way into the world supply chain, and makes it to you at the much. aaa reports gas prices in the united states this week, averaged $3.68 as gallon. that's the highest price in six years. uncertainty over iraq isisming higher, and for now you can expect that upward pressure to continue. what the battle of far away iraq means to the much prices in battle creek michigan. this time on the program, b actionji took 300,000-barrel as day out of circulation, and most of it was for domestic consumption. will the world marketplace for petroleum perceive greater risk and start pricing accordingly? t
community in the shia population generally and to some degree even in iran are willing to go for a unified iraq. there can be no unified iraq with the sort of policies he has followed for the last several years. everybody wants a unified iraq. so i think there's got to be a change of one sort or another either in him or the government. >> doug, we heard president obama today. he said the u.s. will be deploying 300 advisors. that's something when he's talking about advisors that are prepared to take targeted action, but they're not in combat. it sort of begs the question how would they not be in combat if they're taking targeted action. >> they made it clear these advisors will only be at brig level and higher. they'll be sitting in offices not out on the frontlines and they'll be looking at the maps in these head quarters and using that to push data back to u.s. missiles or aircraft if the time comes when the president decides we have to do that. >> so they're sort of holed up, giving advice. why is it so necessary to be right there on ground? >> well, the closer you can get the better. i
, there is no force to keep our leverage on the ground and keep iran out. after we brought peace on the region and they ran on it and got elected on it. i want to build on what you said. you said why isn't the intelligence better. the reason the intelligence isn't better is because we totally pulled out and left. why is maliki allowed to do what he's doing. >> he asked us to leave and we did. president obama never really -- but brian, you're asking president obama to do something that he never wanted to do. he's actually now calling for political solution, in a country that was never ready for democracy. it is -- let me finish. it was deeply rooted in ethnic hatred from the get-go. we made the mistake of thinking that somehow, when they have people's heads on a stick, they're federalists. >> we worked to get the surge going. that's different. >> we don't know -- part of the problem is, we're not sure who we're arming, who we're backing. >> that's right. >> they keep jumping from one country to another, changing flags, taking the uniforms off. here's where you get in real trouble. when you star
and we have to wait for the american answer and the position of iran and turkey and other regional players to see what would happen in the near future. >> trapped in the dark and icy depths, almost a fortnight. the seriously injured 52 -year-old explorer has glimpsed the light of day. >> 700 strong rescue team managed to get the him one kilometer underground in a labyrinth cave in bavaria and they carefully hauled him back to the surface. >> they carefully pulled the injured cave researcher to the surface. he had been in the cave for nearly two weeks. the cave is notoriously difficult to navigate. a badly injured person has never before been freed from such a situation. >> i don't want to be melodramatic but i think that we can say that in the last 12 days here, we have written a chapter in alpine rescue history. >> the drama began on the eighth of june. he suffered a serious head injury when he was hit by falling rock. he was more than a kilometer down. doctors who had examined him said that he could be moved. those doctors and other helpers needed 12 hours just to reach him. it w
about his concerns that iran is a part of this conversation with president obama and others saying that perhaps iran could play a constructive role being a shia nation with the dominant shia population of iraq. could there be some partnership there? ted cruz very flatly saying iran is an enemy of the united states and it would be foolish to suggest they could be a part of the solution. so there is some affirmation for the president's position, some criticism and a lot of wait and see here on capitol hill. ed? >> kelly o'donnell, nbc news correspondent. great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. let me bring in former navy admiral joe sestak. thanks for your expertise on this. how do we know that this isn't the beginning of escalation? i have to ask the question. how do we than this isn't going to spiral out of control? >> because we have a president that has made it very clear, ed. this isn't going to be combat troops that we're sending in, tens of thousands of them. he has set the end limit of what we're going to do and there are two things he's done. he's made a prudent d
that iran is our enemy. we need to bring that same clarity, that same bipartisan unity to current circumstances in iraq. just because iran fears the isis jihadists, it does not follow that we should partner with them in this fight. the enemy of our enemy in this instance is not our friend. if we cannot secure our people absent iranian involvement, we need to get them out. if we cannot strike isis in iraq without iranian involvement, then we need to look for another means of doing so. isis consists of radical islamic terrorists who seek to murder americans. and yet, the iranian regime has over and over again demonstrated the same hostile intent. indeed, it is the leading sponsor of terrorism across the world. madam president, it is deeply concerning that not only secretary of state john kerry, but also former secretary of state hillary clinton and secretary of defense chuck hagel have all signaled in recent days that they are actively interested in exploring a partnership with iran to deal with iraq. indeed, today president obama publicly suggested -- quote -- "iran can play a cons
and the kurds back into the government, and you have a coalition government that can 1fh only helping iran and that's why i'm very, very reluctant to want to do that, and would say no on air power right now. >> hmm. what about just the idea of forming a more coalition, more of a normal government, maybe the problem is the guy at the head of the government? maybe maliki has to go and we can't make headway here unless and until he does. >> that's my bottom line. until maliki goes, and you get a leader that can bring a coalition together, then we shouldn't help them. if he does that, and he doesn't lean into iran like he has been doing, we have no choice. >> general, i always wonder, maybe going back to the arab spring, we never know who our friends are, and or who is -- so just when we think this coalition government adequately represented by shias and sunnies, but in the end we can't be sure who is the good guy and who is the bad guy, who is the moderate guy, the crazy guy. so in the end we're just propping up something that is going to fall anyway. what do you think? >> well, that has a lo
recognized at the time and hugely relevant to recent reports about possible u.s. cooperation with iran in the current iraq crisis. the war logs revealed the extent to which iran intervened aggressively in support of shiite combatants offering weapon, training and sanctuary and in a few instances directly engaging american troops. julian assange published the iraq war logs four years ago. today marks the two-year anniversary of his confinement at the ecuadorian embassy under threat of arrest and extradition to the united states. joining me now is publisher and founder of wikileaks julian assange and also joining us is president emeritus for constitutional rights and attorney for wikileaks michael rattner. julian, i know there is a short delay so i will get right to it. let me first get your reaction to the presence of dick cheney and paul wolfowitz having greater military presence in iraq. >> these two individuals have no credibility with the world public, and i hope they have no credibility anymore with the u.s. public. we were all lied into this war and, in fact, it's a feature of dem
against iraq -- iran and then, of course, more recent war against the u.s. and coalition forces. and then terrible government after the war by the person who is now prime minister, al maliki. it is part of a continuum of extremely poor governance by over a millennia. >> you mentioned al maliki and mentioned leadership. again, i go back. the 100 years after the european established iraq and -- established the government and established rules. and it is still happening. the outside powers, wrought side forces, trying to make the rules for iraq. the white house is saying, you know, it wants a new leader there. >> it is saying that between the lines. the white house is not alone. there are plenty of people much closer to iraq. in its own neighborhoods saying the same things. in a democrat, it is hard to think of a democratic country where a leader loses large amounts of territory to a terrorist group, thounz and of his people die and his soldiers give up the battle and run away and that leader still stays and most democratic countries that leader would have in shame and humiliation
by the iraqis to try and get out of this crisis. but iran is doing the same thing. iran has advisers here, is working closely with the iraqi security forces, has longer -- or at least as long relationships with them than the united states does. they have the religion in common in many cases. so there will be two hands on the wheel here. the u.s. and iran. >> right. >> and right now, the u.s. and iran have similar interests. they both want to get rid of this militant group, isis. but long-term, it remains to be seen and many are skeptical and even the president was skeptical this over time the u.s. and iran have the same vision for the future of this country. >> yes. difficult to say the least, richard engle in baghdad. let's turn now to iraq war veteran former congressman and friend of the show patrick murphy. and with us at the desk is nikel kumar. i want to start start with you as richard was referencing the president, essentially calling for a replacement to al maliki without directly doing that, also calling for a political situation to the crisis. time has some great color in the cov
